(Newser) – Kevin Bacon has inadvertently given his Fox TV show The Following a big dose of publicity, but not in the way diehard fans will appreciate. We won't give it away here, but Bacon served up a major plot twist on Twitter before deleting the tweet and apologizing, reports the Christian Science Monitor. “To all the fans abroad and late watchers I'm truly sorry I retweeted a spoiler,” he tweeted. “I just wasn't thinking. Won't happen again.” In the show, Bacon plays an FBI agent chasing a serial killer with a cult-like following. If you just can't live without knowing the plot twist, see the LA Times coverage.

Seriously, does anyone even watch that show? It kind of reminds me of the typical FOX broadcast series, where it runs for a season or two & gets canceled due to overwhelming lack of interest.

That's my 6th cousin, always spoiling things.

He just wasn't thinking...Asking him to think would be like asking a fish to walk.
